21 weeks

On Friday I turned 21 weeks.
On Thursday we had an ultrasound that confirmed that this lil guy is offically Nolan's size.

13 ounces.

It's so bittersweet to imagine that Nolan was this far behind in growth, remember he was born at 26 weeks, he was such a miracle that he even survived 3 days at his size. Bittersweet that his little brother is already his size 5 weeks younger.
I miss my little guy. But I am praying his little brother keep growing and will be over 2lbs at 26 weeks.

So here is Nolan, born at 26 weeks, weighing 13 ounces and 10.5 inches. A true miracle.

I'm sure all the milestones that Nolan's little brother hits are quite bittersweet...and although he is reaching all the milestones ahead of Nolan, it doesn't take away the "what if's" from losing Nolan. I'm so glad that this pregnancy is going well and hope that it continues to do so for you Chris and Nolan.

Big hugs!

I'm happy to hear that things are going well with the pregnancy...but I can understand how hard it is seeing the differences. Nolan is definitely cheering his little brother on though... Stay strong, little brother and momma! :) Hugs to you all.

You are so right....such a little miracle!!!! Absolutely precious.

I know bittersweet doesn't even come close to encompassing the feelings...

Glad Nolan's little brother is thriving!
